PHASE ONE: CLEAN WATER & HAND SANITATION

LOCATION: Various villages in Andhra Pradesh state of India.
While there are government-sponsored wells that are present in the area, they are not hygienic.
Locals resorted to drinking puddle water.

We leveraged the regional expertise of our local partners, who are currently maintaining the well.
PHASE TWO: EDUCATION - IN PROGRESS NOW

1.4 million 6-11 year olds are not attending school
29% of children drop out before completing five years of primary school

Our next step is to purchase land for the school. Find out how you can help.
FOREFRONT architects, Edmund and Sid, are currently designing the school. They are working closely with our local partner to ensure design accommodates the local climate, terrain and energy sources.
